ASB Tennis Classic director Karl Budge insists he'll be staying put after yet another tournament.

Budge has just overseen his fifth tournament and has been seen as a potential option to take up the recently vacant Tennis New Zealand CEO role.

But Budge says he's happy with what he does and the CEO role doesn't interest him.

He says the tournaments are like his kids and are the only thing he thinks about so as long as he's wanted he'll continue in the role.

Budge has already begun preparations for next year's event and is in Melbourne attending the Australian Open.
